Tribute to Paul Harvey

There was no one who could tell a story the way Paul Harvey could.  I loved the way he read and spoke his broadcasts.  So unique and fascinating.  Thought you might enjoy this.  He certainly was a success before and well after sixty.

Let me hear what you liked most about Paul Harvey.

WGN Tribute to Paul Harvey

One of my favorite things, if the timing presented itself, was to listen to the Paul Harvey 8:30AM five minute broadcast or the noon fifteen minute broadcast.  He sure had a way with our language and creating an intriguing story.

I thought you would find this interesting.  I can’t believe it’s already been a year that he’s been gone.

What did you like most about Paul Harvey, if you were a fan?

What is a Policeman?

This is a reading done by Paul Harvey.  This particular YouTube video of slides is a tribute to some Florida policemen who were killed about a year ago.

Here’s to all the policemen and especially to the ones we know personally.  Thanks Dean (my nephew) for your service in your town in Pennsylvania.

Who do you know that you would like to thank?

Get Up One More Time

“Get up one more time…”  A number of years ago, I read these words as a quote from Paul Harvey.  More about Paul Harvey in a future post, but for now, the impact of this phrase.

This phrase is made up of some fairly mundane words, but the impact is huge.  Think about it in terms of giving someone encouragement to continue with a project, a goal, a dream or a mission of theirs.  Are you not getting the impact?

Well, here is the rest of the story… I mean line… The entire line is “Get up one more time than you fall down”.  Now you can understand the impact this entire phrase could have on someone who is ready to quit. 

Perhaps you know of someone who has just had a setback of some type and they don’t see how they can continue on.   It could be as simple as a project they want to do.  It could be the seriousness of a health issue they are battling with.  It could be a dream they are working to achieve.  Who do you know that you could help with this phrase?

The reason this made an impact on me is that there was a time that I was having a bad day or maybe a series of days, for whatever the reason.  At the time I was in a workplace setting and someone had a glass jar on his desk with small pieces of brightly colored papers in it.  On each small paper was a quote.  I’m not sure they were all Paul Harvey quotes, probably not.  But on this day as I was expressing whatever it was, he invited me to reach in a pull one out. 

That actually has stayed with me for many years, and it was probably about sixteen or seventeen years ago that this took place.  We all resonate with different words and phrases, but perhaps you know someone who may need to hear this and will thank you the way I thanked the person I received it from.
